Cleansers -Aveeno - Clear Complexion Cream Cleanser

Evens skintone! Acne scars, begone! Keeps my skin pretty clear. But! My main complaint is it's pretty ineffective of cleansing off makeup so I use a lemon juice toner, also good for acne scars and takes off whatever it missed. Not too drying for an acne wash. Reasonably priced. I wouldn't mind if it was cheaper but then again I think everything is overpriced haha. The smell? Jeepers creepers, I have a sensitive nose but it doesn't bother me none. Come on now, what are you doing? Are you inhaling it into your nostrils? It's not a great smell but it's not strong. Gosh. Worth a try! ^_^

For lack of a better word, it sucks. It's way too expensive for such little product ( 9$ for 5 ml, the hell?) and it doesn't dispense properly. Mine was on sale for 2 bucks. Good thing it was or I would have been pissed. BUT! The chrome colors are really pretty, I got gold and it's quite tubular! They should put the colors in regular nail polish bottles, that would solve everything! Oh yeah, avoid this.

I'm disappointed in this. First, it's called coral charm and it's 95% gold shimmer, and it's so sheer you have to put on so much to tell it's on. It has a heavy feeling to it too. It's just not what I'm looking for. I ended up giving this to my mom to see if she likes it. This earns a frowny face!

I think the negative reviews are people who don't use these the right way. You have to WET your eyes first, then use it. Works like a charm. This stuff conditions my eyelashes, seriously! The oil helps to keep dry lines away, too. So just wet your eyes, warm water works best, then use it.
Oooh, this stuff is super awesome. It's really pretty by itself or over anything. I painted it over white and it looks like I have some kind of pearl fingernails!! My mom got one that was more so pinkish so I'll try that next. My favorite nail polishes are duocromes, they're so snazzy.
I hate to admit it, but I was also sucked in by this new and unusual item. The packaging just slaps you in face and demands you to buy it! It kind of makes me feel shallow, my love for this is fueled by it's dashing good looks. And inside this little layer of cuteness lies a lip balm, comparing the two makes the balm seem a little lacking in some way. I like it enough to buy again. I have no major complaints. I feel that the lemon type is a but more moisturizing, and yet I like the smell of this better. Even though lemon also smells really good. I hope they make a tinted kinda shiny version, and it'll be right up my alley. This a conversation starter, I mean it kinda resembles a hard-boiled egg, haha. Sorta strange to just whip out and use in public. Buy it, if nothing, just for shits and giggles!
I really like this, the coverage, price, oil control, and even the blue container. Sadly, it's too freaking dark, even though I got the lightest shade. I even have the clean makeup liquid in ivory (also the lightest shade) but that matches perfectly. Why oh why are they different? I don't even look tan, I just look dirty! Damn you Covergirl! I DEMAND MORE PALE SHADES!!
I really like this stuff! The color looks natural on (but still buildable!) and ohmygod it's matte! No sparkles!!! It's like nine dollars at Walmart so it's OK on the price. I like the packaging too. My only complaint is I find it hard to blend but using a sponge instead of your hands is much easier! Also that may be me cause I've been using Maybelline's mousse blush shit. I'm buying this again.

This has a gross chemical cotton candy kind of smell that makes it hard for me to use. Thankfully it goes away after a little bit. But, other than that I like this, it makes my face extra clean and I think it's a little clearer and I haven't been using this but for a week or two so yeah. We'll see! I probably won't get this again because I know there has to be better out there :D

If I could rename this it'd be "mysteriously sexy icecream!" Makes me feel like I should be by a fireplace in the mountains and such. Haha, my dog likes this, she only licked the sample card for this and I let her smell four different ones. Anywho, wuv it! My favorite so far.

It doesn't last, is seriously half sparkles (although those last FOREVER) and makes acne scars stand out. I love the color, but I won't buy it again.
